The Ballad of Sharon Jasper, TRUE STORY
Read the book by Hilaire Belloc The Servile State:
All posters have to be very cautious in saying anything or criticizing the women in the picture, the Goo Goo Squad of Phony Do-Gooders are waiting to pounce on you, I know I can't "comment" on it.
What's your problem, Harry Boy? You don't like paying for wood floors and 60" screen TVs, you hopeless crank?
Sharon DID support herself that ONE year. One out of 58 can't be that bad? New Orleans, very well run city by liberals.
White and proud.. credits to stormfront..
Snoopes debunks it as internet satire... do the hard work before you post
snopes.com: Sharon Jasper Section 8 Public Housing
Snopes doesn't. I read through it three times. Am I missing something?
BTW, I got the story from the blog Independent Thinkers Lounge.
I don't go on the neo-Nazi message boards. I leave that up to you.
BTW, snopes.com has really dropped the ball on the President's failure to produce a birth certificate as required by the Constitution.
The document posted on the 'Net that contains blackened out areas is an obvious forgery. Is Snopes.com infallible?
Try obtaining a Passport using a "Certificate of Live Birth" that's incomplete--doesn't contain the hospital or delivery physician.
Ain't going to happen, DarrylS.
"Though we cannot yet identify the satirist who masterminded this piece"... if you go to stormfront and use their search engine, there are about 23 pages of hits for it.. so they have fun with it there also..
Yeah, but be careful about ascribing guilt by association.
Otherwise, I just get lazy and do the same thing. For example, labeling anyone who supports the current progressive income tax as communists, since that's one of the ten planks as laid out by Marx and Engels.
How about my question on the Rev. who was tazered???
Obama's Aunt Zucchini eats Lobsters with Food Stamps, illegal aliens eat better than many hard working Americans do.
Katrina Debit Cards (I can't Comment On That One Either)
12 million people invaded this country illegally now we have to support them.
Sarah Palin will take care of this Crazy Sh!t...........:singing:
This is a real person and many parts of the satire are real. Why did you skip the part about her city council outburst being true? That the photo of her sitting in her obviously nice apartment with the hardwood floors and her big screen TV is authentic. The part where she said that she'd be better off in those tents was true as well. She describes her apartment with the nice accruements as a â€śslum" They said the piece was both satire and true giving it a "multiple" status.
But it is not completely true, is it.. if you post something that seems pretty absurd, shouldn't you vette the source first.. is the satire ok???.. if real stuff is posted it is stand alone, but it is negated when you add the satire..
What is the responsibilty to this board, just post crap.. or at least check it out???
Yes you should check stories out before you post. Obviously a satirical piece shouldnâ€™t be portrayed as a serious one. The satire heavily exaggerates the situation (which is what the point of satire is) but it could never have got off the ground without the woman's absurd charge complete with attitude that she was living in a slum....that her free ride wasn't luxurious enough.
Why should my taxes go to people who choose not to work?
I think they should 1) starve; 2) rely on family or friends; 3) or learn and correct their ways.
I'm seriously considering reducing my charity donations in light of out-of-control gov't spending.
Moni Q came in yesterday and paid her $18 monthly rent. Mony Q speaks about 15 words of english, and spent a week in Vegas in May. Mony Q is about 40-45 years old I'd say, give or take, and always calls this guy that she's with "her husband", even though he lives in a separate subsidized unit (not one of mine), and as he told me, has been paying his $25 rent for 15 years now. What a country eh? Mind you Mony Q is a terrific tenant, and a nice woman. She's uber clean, extremely polite, and an overall pleasant human being. The $18 aside, she's a very nice woman.
Real World, that's not the way they are in Flint, Michigan.
Nasty, third-generation welfare queens with large broods by various ne'er-do-well men who are not around.
